Packaging changes in KDE Telepathy


We have done some changes to our KDE Telepathy repositories recently, that might be interesting for packagers.

We have consolidated all Plasma applets into a single repository called ktp-desktop-applets (originally ktp-contact-applet). The ktp-presence-applet repository is now empty, the master branch contains just a README, the stable branch kde-telepathy-0.5 is preserved.

We have also normalized names of the applets, so they are now called org.kde.ktp-presence, org.kde.ktp-chat, org.kde.ktp-contactlist and org.kde.ktp-contact. The ktp-desktop-applets installs an update script for Plasma Desktop that will automatically update user configuration on next login.

All declarative plugins are now located in ktp-common-internals, so that all our QML models and utils are available for developers.

These changes will be first available in 0.6 release.

    Hi! Just a little off-topic question: Do you have any estimate for the 0.6 release? We’ve want to use it so bad!

  2. Hi Dan,

    I’m using the version 0.5.2 of KDE Telepathy. I realized that Telepathy does not permit that users with “Offline” status don’t call me for a chat. Is this a known issue or the problem is with me?

    Thank you.
